Obama Stars in The No-Name
Law That Sank His Party

American Thinker, by Clarice Feldman

Original Article

Posted By:SpeedMaster, 12/8/2013 5:27:02 AM

When the Pelosi-Reid-Obama troika triumphantly celebrated cramming through the ACA (Affordable Care Act) over majority sentiment, they crowed that this was the president´s signature achievement and ACA soon took on the name of its creator, ObamaCare. Though not one of them, nor any of the Democrats in the Senate who voted it into law uni-partisanly had read it, they all assured us that we´d grow to really, really like it. Boy, were they wrong.

Anytime I notice a reference to 0care as ACA I am reminded that the Acronym is PPACA and the law is/was not about patient protection but rather affordable care through lowering medical costs by ´allowing´ or ´nudging´ more patients to die. I fail to understand why someone like Clarice would not continuously remind the readers.

My favorite line in the article, which I hope comes to pass:

"Once the employer mandate kicks in they´ll be hunting Democrats with dogs in this country."

Democrats must laugh themselves silly when they name their bills. They seem to take a perverse pleasure in purposely naming them the exact opposite of what they really are. Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is ludicrously obverse.

When the focus is on optics and messaging you can be sure that the substance of the progressive philosophy of the democrat party is something that needs to be hidden behind a smiling carnival barker. Putting their core beliefs out there is political suicide for them. Therefore, they need a hip, cool, diverse con man to sell what if fully explained, no one would buy. Obama is the perfect pitchman and all is well until their folly must actually work. We know Obamacare is a blight on the American economy and personal health care. They know we know it and they know we know, they know it, but they don´t care because they believe Obama by the sheer strength of his personality, can grind this through. They can´t conceive of anyone or anything being able to derail this.

However, there is one last ray of hope on the horizon and that is "we the people". The political class in Washington DC has failed this country and its people. We must look to each other to send Washington a message they will never forget. The founders gave us two tools. One is the ballot box and the second is unthinkable. I pray that every voter will stand with us to elect committed conservatives with the will to bring down the curtain on this vile administration.

Why doesn´t the MSM report the fact that IBM offered to set up the web page for enrollment for free? They were turned down in order to give the Canadian company run by Michelle´s activist friend and classmate from Princeton the job. Not only is her friend the VP of the company but Valerie Jarrett´s daughter and son-in-law work there too. This fiasco will end up costing us a billion dollars. Whose pockets did that money go into? It never ceases to amaze me how much Communists love Capitalism when money is lining their pockets.

Propaganda: "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”........Dr. Paul Joseph Goebbels, Reich Minister of Propaganda

Picking a nit: How does Clarice abbreviate Unaffordable Care Act into UFA? Shouldn´t it be UCA?

Clarice is correct in her observation that math is hard for Democrats. Sick people are going to sign up for this insurance because paying out of pocket will bankrupt them. By contrast, younger, healthier people have every incentive simply to pay cash for their infrequent medical needs. If an illness or accident strikes, the removal of restrictions on pre-existing conditions allows them to postpone signing up for insurance until they actually need it. If insurance is serving only those who are sick, what will happen to the premiums? Those of us who live in the real world know that they will skyrocket. Democrats, on the other hand, will be surprised and angry when they see health insurance become unaffordable for everybody who is not on Medicaid.

The IBM thing was news to me too. But I vividly remember in January of the Obammunist´s first term, just after inauguration, he invited a select group of CEO´s to the White House and IBM´s was among them. I believe that a list of those CEOs would show the worst of the crony capitalist, corporatist, and shall we say, fascist companies in this country. I am a great believer in the free market but Ayn Rand painted a strong picture of the type of companies that fall into bed with government instead of competing. Oren Boyle´s Associated Steel lives.

And the take-away from Zeke Emanuel´s interview of Mike Wallace [intended reversal there] is that the WH is about to unleash a massive PR campaign to convince the 27-34 year olds that they have to buy insurance.

This is not about whether the policy works or is good for people. It is about controlling them. It is about the message.

It is the Fourth Reich.

Kaiser Foundation head honcho Drew Altman has nothing to do with the various Kaiser Permanente operating companies but he certainly keeps aprised of what they do since together they are America´s largest HMO (and they use that Kaiser name)

I hope he watched as Kaiser Permanente flushed itself down the toilet in Northern Virginia by breaking up with INOVA.

Now local Kaiser customers can´t use local hospitals, among them one of the best on the planet.

Kaiser just picked up a reputation for preferring second rate downstream medical service ~ and talk about a political problem ~ that´s where a large number of the headquarters employees of all the major federal government agencies life.

I´m sure those who remain with Kaiser will love their co-payment free rides to Baltimore or Fredericksburg for hospital care.

WOW ~ one, two, or three hour one way trips at best ~ and sometimes it´s worse.

Let´s not forget John Boehner´s hand in letting obamacare continue for these last 3 years. The moment the SC stated obamacare was a tax Boehner had the fiduciary responsibility of his office to immediately file suit against this monster because with it being a TAX, OBAMACARE originated in the Senate and not the House whose responsibility is holding the purse strings.
Boehner has also refused to help ending this chaos in DC caused by obama and his minions by not calling for Select Committees on the many ´scandals´ or bringing to the floor the calling for a Congressional Investigation of obama. There is proof positive of FRAUD by obama in presenting the computer generated birth certificate. There is documentation of proof of the individual responsible for the forgery and the complicity of the Health Department in Hawaii. Much, much more.
Listen to the interview of the author of affidavits to the Washington State Fed Court--one sealed affidavit---naming names of the responsible individuals the other affidavit showing the 20 points of proof of fabrication.
Read Doug Hagmann´s 12-5 article at Canada Free Press and then listen to the interview. Long but SO important.

Clarice, as usual, pins the tail right on the donkey´s butt.

This communist exercise in healthcare perpetrated by the democrats and pitched by Obama will shortly come to a crashing collapse when they figure out that nobody is interested in paying for it and will willingly break the law to see it fail. Obama´s constant sales pitches to the young and dumb remind me of the worst kind of used car salesman. He will say and do anything to persuade you to buy the product when his only risk is in the failure of the car to make it off the lot. In the case of the ACA, the website was supposed to be the lot with the nasty surprises coming later. But not only did the ill-devised system fail, the car would not start after the sale was made. Now we have a silly Kenyan in a checkered suit looking like the clown that he is.

All is not lost. The next sane president will repeal the entire law and private industry will put our working system back together again. We Americans have learned something from this exercise. We know what a greedy bunch of sewer rats run our health insurance companies and we will be gunning for them first when healthcare comes up on the agenda again.

Well, America´s sick and tired of your voice, your face, the crease of your pants. Sit down and shut up and slink thru the remaining three years.

Ann Coulter was recently interviewed by author, journalist and talk radio host Howie Carr on his program; her commentary was pure establishment balderdash. Ann may plead hyperbole, but her sentiment is readily apparent. Among the pearls of wisdom: Carr: “Who are you for, for president right now, Ann?” Coulter: “Um…well, don’t tell’em, but I’m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest; flying out, kidnapping him, and depriving him of sleep, food and water until he agrees to run again.” Carr: “You’re kidding.” Coulter: “No” Carr: “You really want him to run again?”

House Speaker John Boehner’s top allies are racing out the door to retirement, Bloomberg News reported on Thursday. Top Boehner allies that are retiring in 2014 include four committee chairmen: Reps. Mike Rogers (R-MI) of the Intelligence Committee, Buck McKeon (R-CA) of the Armed Services Committee, Doc Hastings (R-WA) of the Natural Resources Committee and Dave Camp (R-MI) of the Ways and Means Committee. One of Boehner closest friends, Rep. Tom Latham (R-IA), is retiring this year, and another—Rep. Mike Simpson (R-ID)—may lose his seat in a primary in Idaho against conservative Bryan Smith.

Well, the government is no longer small, and this year, in Virginia´s Seventh Congressional District, it matters very much who wins. Republicans are not the only people in this country who are dismayed at the collapse of conviction and principle in the party’s national establishment.

The ultimate party litmus test: given a veto-proof legislature, will Republicans finally start to reduce the scope and size of government? It looks like the answer is no. In 2013, North Carolina was just one of 25 states where Republican governors were given historic opportunity to govern alongside Republican-controlled legislatures. Despite conservative voters’ best hopes, any sensible mandate to restore individual and economic freedom flew out the window when the FY 2013-14 budget was approved, reauthorizing the formerly Democratic state’s blueprint budget with a tragic 2.0-percent increase in general fund appropriations.

The danger is this: In the USA’s upcoming 2014 elections, Republican elites assume that everyone all now agrees that conservatives ‘must’ support non-conservative candidates to win more elections. The GOP is operating on the belief that everyone is on board, simply because insiders have officially decreed it to be so. However, the grassroots in the USA remains unconvinced. Worse, the Republican establishment has no plan for truly healing the actual wounds. Elites want to avoid change more fervently than they do want to win elections. Elites violated trust by advancing liberal policies in the U.S. Congress, but they won’t apologize or

Over the past year or so, Gowdy, a South Carolina Republican congressman, has drawn substantial national attention, winning adulation from Tea Party activists who like his tough questioning in committee hearings. His growing prominence and indisputably Southern demeanor have made him one of the standouts from the 2010 House class. He’s in good company.

Russia´s Putin has invaded his neighbor’s sovereign territory. He must and will face serious repercussions for doing so, and the international community must make the price severe. Unless we are willing to go to war for Ukraine—and I believe that would be unwise—Russia without question has the military might and geographic advantage to control the Crimea and the Russian dominated areas of Ukraine. But at what cost? Russia´s stock market is dropping precipitously and their economy is quite dependent on exports that depend on a stable Ukraine.

Russia’s invasion of Crimea is a tipping point event that will further spur the American oil boom. The European Union (EU) and United States in 2008 threatened to slap economic sanctions on Russia for invading Georgia. But after a while the criticism faded and threats of sanctions were quietly dropped, because the EU is almost entirely reliant on Russia for energy supplies. A similar situation is unfolding today as the EU and U.S. are again making empty threats that they will stop exports of Russian oil and gas as punishment for invading the Ukraine. But due to the latest humiliation by

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state.

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

As President Obama spoke of old "wounds” at Fort Hood this week, the White House declined a request from a survivor of the 2009 massacre there to meet with Obama for a few minutes so the veteran could explain face-to-face how he believes the government has mistreated and disrespected the victims of that attack.

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and
